About the Book

All her life, Imogene has been known as the girl on THAT blog.

Imogene’s mother has been writing an incredibly embarrassing, and incredibly popular, blog about her since before she was born. Hundreds of thousands of perfect strangers knew when Imogene had her first period. Imogene’s crush saw her “before and after” orthodontia photos. But Imogene is fifteen now, and her mother is still blogging about her, in gruesome detail, against her will.

When a mandatory school project compels Imogene to start her own blog, Imogene is reluctant to expose even more of her life online…until she realizes that the project is the opportunity she’s been waiting for to tell the truth about her life under the virtual microscope and to define herself for the first time.

Don’t Call Me Baby is a sharply observed and irrepressibly charming story about mothers and daughters, best friends and first crushes, and the surface-level identities we show the world online and the truth you can see only in real life. (From Goodreads.com)

Why I’m Waiting

The premise of this is a facinating concept that I’ve actually grappled with myself.  When my kids were born, I wondered just how much of their lives I should be sharing online.  One day they are going to be old enough to SEE that stuff and as we all know once it is online, it is out there forever.  So, as a mom, this book sounds pretty great.

But beyond that, the girl trying to create her own identity outside her family.  I think it sounds really awesome!  And now, I wait. 🙂

  1. Ooh! I hadn’t heard of this one yet but it looks really good! Great topic (blogging)! Years ago, when my girls were much younger, I had someone tell me I was saying too much about them on my blog. (They were like, 7 8 and 9 maybe, then.) I thought it was a weird thing to say back then, but as the girls have grown I *have* really stopped saying much about their personal lives. So I totally get it, and definitely want to read this! Thanks for sharing, Jess! 🙂

    • I know the cover doesn’t do anything, but the synopsis sounds so great! I got the ARC on Edelweiss, but I haven’t gotten to it yet. Thank goodness for Christmas break!

      And you sound like me.. I’ve been catching up on two weeks of comments today myself. Ahh, college.

Lovely words from lovely people!
